The Caustics Effect for After Effects

Recently, I was trying to make an intro video with a watery effect. When I was doing research on how to do this effect in After Effect, I stumble onto this video. I actually found it very helpful for what I was doing. I know that accent of the person can be distracting, but it is a really good tutorial. If you are looking to do the caustic effect, check it out.

 

Yes, it’s called Durarara!!

I’m a big sucker of watching cartoons. From the days of being that little kid who sat in front of the television watching Saturday morning cartoons. To the present as the adult who sits in front of the television watching cartoons everyday of the week. For awhile, I haven’t had cable. My source of cartoons came from streaming sites and Netflix. With so much out there, I can’t complain at all. Recently, I have been watching some of anime. I’m a big fan of it. When you watch a show like Attack on Titan, how can you not be a fan of anime. I know, of course, there are a lot of bad ones out there, but that is not what I want to talk about. One show that has gotten my attention is Durarara!! Try saying that five times.

I know that I’m a little late to the party with this show. Trust me, I’m fine with that. It just gives me more episodes to watch. What I really like about this show is the story.  The story is about a group of people who lives all intersect with one another. There are criminal gangs and supernatural elements to it, which gives uniqueness to the show. What really connects the characters to each other is the dark rider. The dark rider is a Dullahan named Celty Sturluson who came to Japan to find her missing head. It sounds bizarre, but don’t let that stop you from watching it.

The appeal of the show is the characters. These characters live such unusual lives. The all have agendas that happen to affect the people around them.  This could have been a disaster trying to make this concept, which could have lead to a confusing story. Instead, it is easy to follow and engaging .

I know that season two of Durarara 2 has started. I haven’t started watching them yet. I want to wait until  there are couple more episodes. What I will say about the show is I highly recommend watching it, if you are looking for something with intrigue. Now, that I caught up with most of the episodes, I have started to watch Fairy Tale. It seems that I found another winner.
